Elizabeth Warren unveils a plan to combat white nationalist crime

It makes prosecuting crimes committed by hate groups a top priority

Elizabeth Warren has released a proposal to combat white nationalism that includes making prosecuting crimes committed by hate groups a top priority for the departments of Justice and Homeland Security.

The Massachusetts senator and Democratic presidential candidate promises to use both agencies to prosecute white nationalist crimes involving threats to life as well as ones linked to broader, previously violent organizations.

Warren said Tuesday she’ll direct the FBI to investigate significant hate crimes and improve law enforcement training while ordering state and local governments to collect better data on bias-motivated crimes.

Warren also says she’ll direct federal prosecutors to seek similar penalties for similar crimes, including consistently designating hate crimes as domestic terrorism.

And Warren’s proposal calls for overhauling police work nationwide, seeking to ensure investigators use evidence effectively without violating individual rights.

    “White Nationalism” is just a puerile euphemism rationalizing being racist – anti-black, anti-brown, anti-red, anti-yellow – and – anti-Muslim, anti-Jewish, and anti-Catholic. These people are the scum of the Earth – and Humpty Trumpty feeds them, feeds them, feeds them at every opportunity. His juvenile and retarded ‘pep rallies’ refuels them. Deplorable and repugnant, all!

    I assume that Ms Warren will guarantee that all attacks by Black Lives Matter and Antifa affiliated persons will be recognized for the Hate Crimes they are and the criminals vigorously prosecuted as Domestic Terrorists as well. What’s that about Equal Justice?
